Six of Feathers / Swords

Six of Feathers / Swords
Took an unscheduled hiatus from this project, but I’m back. This is a pretty good card to return with. The Feathers are a hard suit, but this isn’t a negative/difficult card. While I can see the potential “bad idea” aspect of the Six of Feathers, I normally see this as a good omen type of card. I am very much a look (and plan and plan some more) before you leap kind of person, so I tend to look at this card as a push to take action or change things up.

Five of Feathers / Swords

Five of Feathers / Swords
Man, this suit is rough. The energy of the Five of Feathers is bizarre, but oddly understandable. While someone literally sewing feathers onto their skin may seem ridiculous, this person obviously isn’t doing this on the spur of the moment. The dead bird, feathers, thread, and needles are all laid out. There was a plan in place here. Why this started isn’t as important as why it is continuing. Clearly, this isn’t a good way to accomplish whatever this person initially wanted to accomplish, but they aren’t taking a step back to reconsider.

The Four of Feathers is a card I’m pretty much always glad to see. I’m a big fan of structure and taking time to myself to just be quiet.

Oh boy…here we go. Heartbreak sucks. One thing I can say about this card is that I don’t normally have a hard time interpreting it or remembering what it’s about. There aren’t many layers to delve into (for me) with this particular one.

Two of Feathers / Swords

Two of Feathers / Swords
The Two of Feathers always screams of just getting shit taken care of and going through the motions. I can identify with that feeling of just needing to move forward to get through the situation. The person in this card is packing a box in a room that is otherwise all packed up (save the curtains, I suppose). While moving is always stressful on many levels (so many logistics to take care of, so many possessions to sort through, so many decisions–small and large—to make), this card reminds me specifically of post-breakup moves. I’ve been in that situation twice and it makes putting my head down and barrelling through the situation even more of a necessity. I feel like stopping (or even slowing down) will leave me completely overwhelmed and paralyzed.
